The Turkish Wizard of Oz has to go down in history as one of the most amazing remakes ever known. The film gets off to a quick start; once in Oz, Dorothy encounters a group of dwarfs dressed as toy solders, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Lion (a fat guy in a pair of brown pyjamas with hair glued to it).
Belfast based group Kinnego Flux will present a new live score to the film. Kinnego Flux write music which varies from electronica, soul, funk to breakbeat. David plays bass and clarinet, Brian plays drums, trumpet and vocals.
An evening in the company of an octopus, a peanut and a fat guy in a pair of brown pyjamas with hair glued to it.
Gimme Gimme Octopus is a 60s Japanese TV show for kids, starring an octopus and a peanut who are in love with the same walrus. However, love stories are notoriously boring, so the creators of this series decided to infuse the series with lots of crime, gratuitous violence, and insect repellent. Local electronic musicians Iso9 and Deadman present a new soundtrack to such classics as Stealing The Dragon’s Mosquito Repellent Which Is Not At All Psychoactive.
